12 ounce bottle from Bello Vino in Ann Arbor, MI (June 2007), served at cellar temperature from a Maudite glass. Inky-black and totally opaque under strong light, with a smallish dissipating dark chocolate head....smokiness is very restrained in the nose, a disappointment to this rauch-lover but what’s there is nice: lots of dark chocolaty roast, a bit of espresso, cherries, and then...wait....the peaty, earthy notes come through after a couple of minutes....nice.....the body is quite rich, decadent almost, thick and chocolate-malty with a light fruity-yeasty component most prominent in the middle, a touch of tart apple-cherry juice towards the finish, and a quite dry woody/bitter chocolate finish....the mouthfeel is a touch cardboardy at the end initially but it brightens up and the dullness recedes after a few sips....this is one of the least smoky of smoked beers I’ve had, and I find it hard to place in the stout family: not quite complex enough as an Imperial, not fruity or vinous enough for a Foreign stout, not really sweet.....all that said, the balance is elegant, it’s quite drinkable and enjoyable, whatever one calls it, and I’m quite happy to have it after a couple of years of fruitless looking.

Bottle. Very dark brown colour allmost black with a little head. Aroma of roastedness and hints of smoke. Flavour of roastedness, chocolate, coffee and little smokeness, very nice and smooth.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2007
This pours out thick and dark brown with a smallish cocoa head. Nice rauch aroma, not meaty like the Bamberger brews, but having a woody smokiness that smoothly complements the roasted malt, barley, and coffee scents. The flavor is that of a solid, roasty tasting Stout, having the add-ons of some dark bittersweet chocolate and minced hard nuts. The smoke is there, but in a supportive role. Pretty decent.

12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a small tan head that disappears quickly leaving only an outer ring. The aroma has many stout qualities: strong malt backbone, chocolate, a hint of molasses, but not much smoke. The flavor exhibits many of the characteristics of the aroma. This is a good stout. The roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruits are all present. The smoked flavor shows up late into the finish. The mouthfeel is medium-full and is sliky smooth going down. I like this one for the stout that it is, not the smoked as it is classified.

Bottle. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is of chocolate, dark fruits and smoke, so is the taste, but light sweet. Medium body with a dry finish.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Pours a deathly dark dark brown up there with imperial stouts with a rapidly vanishing dark tan head, no head at all in under 30 seconds. The nose is standard big ass stout with just hints of smoke. Sweet licorice and roast. Bits of herbal chocolate. A flat viscous body that while subdued, had some life. Reminiscent of Founder’s Breakfast Stout. Big roast chocolate and alcohol. Some chocolate. A bit of fruity roast like a good cup of coffee. The nose doesn’t hold the smoke as much as the flavor. Over the Breakfast Stout backdrop with licorice there’s a bit of that bandaidy smoke flavor. Also a bit of diacetyl, befitting the style. The finish is strong with licorice and herbs. Not a bad beer at all.

Black w/ brown bubbles. Smokey, roasty aroma of espresso & dark, bitter chocolate w/ notes of licorice. Thick, creamy feel. Flavour is roasty w/ a sweet underlying chocolaty, butterscotch maltiness. Finish is mildly smokey.

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Smoked stout? Really? The smoked character is certainly not the central piece to this beer. I find it more of a complimentary piece that accentuates the heavy malt backbone. As far as the stout characteristics are concerned, I find it pretty well done. Surprised at the viscosity that this one displayed. Good notes of chocolate and dates with a bit of vanilla dancing on the tongue. Again, the body and mouthfeel are unexpectedly chewy. A bit oily in fact. Not bad, but certainly no smoked beer.

Ughsmash (7361) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Bottled. Poured a deep, inky black with a swirly dusting of deep brown head.. leaving a light ring. Aroma was of rich, deep, roasted chocolates and dark fruits with just a subtle hint of smoke.. sweet, herbal notes appear as it warms up a bit. Flavor has more rich, almost burnt chocolate at the core with plum skins and light smoke eminating outward.. some mild charred wood with mild smoke and vanilla riding through the finish.. tasty stuff! Heavier-bodied with a solid feel on the palate... medium, tacky-sweet chocolate finish. Good one!

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2007
nearly black body with a quickly disapearing tan head. Mild aroma of nothing in particular. Slightly bitter roasted aroma with some coffee to it. Not that exciting, really.
